My router ip was; I changed it to at the router web interface. Now I know that was bad idea. How could I change it back as it was? I can't access web interface now

Have you tried accessing the web interface at – gronostaj Jul 15 '13 at 9:35

You may have to refresh your network connection on the client (release and renew its IP address) first.

Be sure to release and renew the IP of the device you use to access the router at the new address – Dave M Jul 14 '13 at 15:55
Right, thanks. Answer edited to say that. – Andrew Schulman Jul 14 '13 at 16:14
Rebooting the computer should also work for refreshing the routing table, and may be easier if the OP isn't tech-savvy. Still, there's nothing really magical about IP addresses that makes 192.168.y.z any more special than 192.168.c.d. – Michael Kjörling Jul 14 '13 at 16:26

If I knew the make and model of your router, I'd show you a specific picture of the back of your router... or a picture of the reset button. But, I can't get that specific. So, I'll be generic.

Now, not every router has a reset button that is so easy to access. Others have only a small hole that gives you access to it. Either way, examine your router, find the reset button, and push it for 10-15 seconds with the router plugged in. Then, treat it as if you just got it brand new. You can even follow the instructions in the manual for how to access it and set it up again. Chances are, if the default IP address for it was and you had just used it before, it will once again be set to the same.
